A High Quality Collection of Easy Pieces for Mandolin.

This book provides the mandolin player with a unique opportunity to play a wide variety of both early Renaissance and Celtic music including many lute pieces. From “Song of the Chanter” to the lovely “I Serve a Worthy Ladie,” you will have a great time with these selections. It can be a great gig book, either for early music events or for any performance. These are very attractive pieces. You will find them catchy and they will attract the attention of listeners. They are also quite playable, and lay well on the fingerboard. If you work with a guitarist, there are chords for him or her to use as a basis to build an accompaniment. The Mandolin parts are presented in both notation and tablature.

The accompanying CD is a recording of all of the tunes in the same order in which they appear in the book. Angelina is playing the mandolin and Allan Alexander is playing the guitar, providing a harmonic tapestry over which the melodies float. Every piece in the book can also be played by mandolin alone. Allan chose to record the pieces with guitar in order to present the music with a chordal background and to create an enjoyable CD.
